A bombing attempt of the natural gas line that runs between Egypt, Israel and Jordan was averted today, according to the Associated Press. In Sinai, six gunmen targeted the natural gas pipeline that carries natural gas from Egypt to Israel and to Jordan. They overpowered a guard and planted a bomb, and then fled. Failing to detonate, the region was spared the need for having to burn, yet again, the much more polluting diesel fuel, as was the case last month when the line was bombed at another location.
Violence doesn’t only hurt people. It cripples the environment.
